High Throughput Information Marking System Lambda576

The Lambda576, the first-of-its-kind automated laser marker, is designed to replace manual or even automated application of tube labels which can be prone to error. Moreover, based on the ever increasing requirement to store smaller volumes of samples in smaller tubes, the ability to label typically is not possible or in many cases not suitable for automation.

The AFYS3G automated laser maker can hold up to six ANSI/SLAS format racks of sample storage tubes at once. A gripper arm selects one tube from the rack and carries it to the camera. The camera then detects the laser-friendly part of the tube, which tells the gripper arm how to position the tube in front of the laser. After the tube has been positioned, the laser etches a permanent marking directly onto the tube’s surface.

User-friendly software lets researchers create, select and laser a variety of markings: 2D codes, 1D barcodes, logos, text or sample IDs directly onto a tube’s surface. Markings can be engraved into a non-transparent area of a sample storage tube, allowing them to be read regardless of the type or color of the sample. Tubes from various suppliers such as Brooks Life Sciences and Micronic are compatible with the Lambda576. By simply changing the racks and software settings, the system can be used to laser-etch a variety of brands and tubes.
